COME ON CASEY K!!!
Hey a walk scores a run. Gottem just where we want them.
April 27th, 20099:27 pm
Good swing on the 1-0
ball 2 (2-1)
Kotchman, Just Like Tex, Can’t Come Through When the team seriously needs him…
Way to go Krotchman.
April 27th, 20099:28 pm
And Kotchman is the anti-clutch. He really is.
That was turrible. Just turrible.
Why the big swings there? base hit scores 2?
LOL (eyes rolling)
That was a ball, did Kotchman not know you can get an rbi by walking?
hes 3-4 tonight..give the guy a break. He sat on fastball and just didn’t get on top of it
April 27th, 20099:29 pm
If we had Mark Charles Teixeira, Chipper would not have been walked there… we don’t have the budget
I’m telling you. Kotchman for leadoff. This team has zero speed, so why should the leadoff hitter be any different?
Can this team ever get a clutch hit??? Ever?? So tired of watching this garbage every night.
April 27th, 20099:30 pm
Esco and KJ need to find their #@$#@$ on the bench tomorrow after today’s performances. Just one mistake after another.
You people arer unbelievable. Kotchman is the only Brave who has been hitting tonight and you guys want to kick him off the team because he just misses a pitch!
April 27th, 20099:31 pm
Oh god Bennet on the mound
Jeff Bennett = White Flag
April 27th, 20099:32 pm
vabravesfan, he missed TWO of them in that AB. If he had a manager that preached base hits instead of 3-run HR, he wouldn’t have been over-swinging.
Yes. He’s 3-4 tonight (was 3 for 3 before that AB), but he used a COMPLETELY different swing in the AB in which he failed.
Some guys are BORN to hit with the bases loaded. Rotten-kotch isn’t one of them.
As I flip back from the Hawks to Braves I realize IT SUCKS TO BE AN ATLANTA FAN.
What did we do to deserve so much sucketh?
18 Wheels of Love
Nice 4 hole hitter
What the heck happened to the Hawks game!!!!???
Uga, when will you realize that our frustrations are not simply directed at Kotchman. Albeit some of our posts may contain the word “Krotch” occasionally. It’s just pent up frustration with this garbage team, broski, get used to it, we’re in for a long summer.
Run Heap Run
April 27th, 20099:33 pm
Isn’t Bennet’s ERA like 1.00? How is that a white flag?
N8, that was funny…rottenkotch
April 27th, 20099:34 pm
ugaman, you’re wrong. I’m OK with guys missing pitches. But he over-swung on BOTH of the fastballs he missed that AB.
Managers who ask for “hack-n-jack” ball, get exactly that when a simple base hit takes the lead.
Not sure why I actually expect NEW players to bring anything different to the table, when being led by the stubborn ole’ mule.
Is this your first season watching the braves?
April 27th, 20099:35 pm
LOL no but he’s been good this season. Who would you suggest he have used there?
Wow, quick hook by Bobby. I must say that Bennet is about the only player I see come on the field that makes me want to get negative. I can’t see for the life of me why he’s on the team. I don’t know that I’ve ever seen him hold inherited runners (why his ERA is so low) or get 3 straight outs.
Bennett has not been that good this year…he has given up A LOT OF RUNS…they just havent been his. Its going to come back to bite him soon.
Agreed, Its all Pent Up Frustration over the last 3 years we have been watching the Same Garbage Night In and Night Out, So everyone has a reson to vent their Frustration on a second class team…
April 27th, 20099:36 pm
Francoeur/Jones/Ross coming up = I need another Bud.
UGAMAN, BENNETTS ERA IS 1.00, WHY CAN’T YOU JUST BE A LOYAL FAN AND SHUT UP.
JasonInFL (Formerly ME)
Rossy is going to hit a 2-run HR to win it!
No one wants to kick him off ugaman, but the point i’m making is with bases loaded and down by one run, a walk ties the game. He swung at a ball. Know the situation. He’s had a great game but were still losing.
Somehow I doubt Kotchman and his 33 career HRs was up there looking to go deep…he just missed, same as Yunel. It does happen sometimes
April 27th, 20099:37 pm
Squeeze old Eric.
If everyone is tired of rooting for this second class team, then why not quit and get off the blog? Then your blood pressure will go down and the rest of us can enjoy baseball:)
April 27th, 20099:38 pm
Does anyone here think Chip Caray is talented, and/or informed, intelligent, funny, entertaining, interesting, skilled, worth listening to, or adult?
Lol, Stephen that was good….I actually am chuckling.
Stephen. touche. LOL!
UGA..our negativity is wearing off on you now….you should go back and read your book..The Secret…
Hey, Ryan Franklin’s on my fantasy team…this could turn out not all that bad for me!
How about the people complaining about the complainers look in the f’ing mirror? Its the same damn thing except we’re talking baseball and you’re talking smack.
People ! Don’t argue with these die heart Braves fans on this blog ! They will never say anything bad about their team ! They the Braves could walk the hitters in ten times and they would say the other team laid off tough pitches !!!!!!!!!! Don’t waste your beathe with them !!!
oh good grief, N8. Kotchman hasn’t hit a HR all year… do you really think he was trying to hit one there? Or that Cox was asking him too? That’s ridiculous. He worked the count to his favor, got a good pitch to hit, swung hard (which is how you get hits in the majors) and just missed it. I’ll take my chances on that swing every day.
Stop whining, people! This is a good baseball game.
I wouldnt use anyone here…I would have walked to the mound made Bennett take off his jersey and lay it on the mound. Then taken my team off the field.
April 27th, 20099:39 pm
Because any baseball is better than no baseball Uga, even in the Braves case.
Bobby should have brought Gonzo in, in the first place.
Don’t worry guys, if we don’t win tonight we got Jo Jo pitching tomorrow. That’s a W for sure.
I’m also known as Sarcasm.
Frank from KS
Ya know, when the Braves first started the run of divison titles…..they came back and won a lot of games late.
That’s all apart of confidence which this team doesn’t have and the Braves as a whole haven’t had for a long time.
maybe it’s the beer but I actually find myself agreeing with almost everything you’ve posted tonight…by the way, looked up your firends RLA- Really good! Thanks for the reccomendation
April 27th, 20099:40 pm
I saw we try not to pitch to Pujols again in this game…how about that?
Nice, sarcasm, I c wut u did thar.
This is a great time for EOF to choke, btw.
Ouch! That hurt. Surely didn’t want to see Pujols again!
Hit him…to get Pujols up…..BOBBY IS A DUMB@ss….should have had Gonzo in the whole time.
April 27th, 20099:41 pm
HAHAHA hit Ankiel to get to Pujols…that my friend is how you play losing baseball.
Well The Blow-Pen Doing Its Best To Lose It…Same Crap different Night…
Pujols will make us pay “Bank on It”
I like to hit people with pitches which lead to seven run melt down innings.
April 27th, 20099:42 pm
Do NOT pitch to Pujos here. Pitch around him just like STL did with Chipper!
But….Gonzo is the closer and the Braves are losing.
Everyone say it at the same time….Pujols is the best hitter in the World…we should not pitch to him…EVER!
April 27th, 20099:43 pm
Oh boy…I’m scared!
cabravesfan… you better watch it. people on the blog might think you’re an ignorant absolute homer with no baseball sense whatsoever:) Thanks for the comment on RLA. I think they’re pretty good myself!
I also call for the ol’ intentional, unitentional walk.
April 27th, 20099:44 pm
HAHAHAHAHAH…..Ross just gives up
KJ doesn’t make that play.
I said it might be the beer! Does that give me a free pass?
Infante looking like a stud.
Ya don’t see that every day!
Good play Omar, or was it a bad one?
3-0 to Pujols??? REally…..really!??
and I freely admit that i am a Homer…I love my team and will not apologize for it.
April 27th, 20099:45 pm
WTH was that by Ross??
Sure looks like Buddy is going after Pujols…hmmm
Hi I'm new
I mean, just throw a ball, ok?
April 27th, 20099:46 pm
Tums with a Chaser of Pepto
Come on Buddy, walk him
Ya this is ridiculous….STOP THROWING STRIKES BUDDY.
April 27th, 20099:47 pm
No really. Golf one up there. Or throw it outside. Or over his head.
cabravesfan..if your drinking Amstel light, then we are in the same boat. In that case, you gut no pass;)
Sure like the fact that Buddy is challenging Pujols! He mays lose, but he’s not afraid!
Buddy is playing with fire…
You cant be competitive with a leadoff hitter who is hitting .200.
I am feeling VERY uneasy about this…why continue to pitch to him? Agree with Orel COMPLETELY…throw it off the plate
April 27th, 20099:48 pm
Dammit! That Fck..in Pujols! Blow-pen Did it again! Game Over
Buddy Carlyle is a gamer, period.
Buddy owns Pujols
WOW! Buddy got lucky.
Buddy Carlyle is a genius!
Wow, I thought that was by the Cow when it came off his bat. Good job Buddy!
EYE OF THE DAMN TIGER! THATABOY BUDDY! NEW RULE NO ONE SAYS CRAP ABOUT BUDDY FOR THE REST OF THE YEAR!!!!!!
I take That Back…I closed My eyes, sorry…! We got Lucky
Alright Buddy, battled King Pujols and lived to tell. He deserves a win for that one.
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
